If your master bedroom does not feel like a honeymoon retreat, then you’re in the right place for some great bedroom design tips for couples’ bedroom.
Yin-Yang Balance: His and Hers Retreat
Strike a yin-yang balance through the dominant colors and hues, for his and hers, this including the wallpaper shades, eye-level dominant colors, and the overall color scheme. Though an ancient pre-historic Chinese medicinal concept, Yin-Yang energy balance is just as important today as it was back then.
Yin (female) energy balance in the room will be highlighted in the softer effeminate colors (favorite colors of hers), and in artistic bedroom accessories like embellished wallpaper; decorative embossed ceilings with sophisticated chandeliers; beautiful flower vases, lamp shades; fine drapery with thick matching rugs and carpeting; silky bedding sheets and velvety linen with enough throws and pillows neatly littered about the bedroom space…just to touch on a few of the master bedroom design tips that will channel the feminine energy.
Yang (male) energy balance in the master bedroom should easily channel through bold colors and masculine hues (or favorite colors of his); brilliant dazzling lights–assorted types strategically positioned about the bedroom space, and this includes lamps and portable spotlights; customized statement head-boards and foot-boards accompanied with macho chests and bedside tables, just to highlight a few bedroom tips for his…
Themed Master Bedroom Designs
Feel free to get all creative here in finding your desired master bedroom theme, there’s no limit to just how customized to a Tee or bizarrely unique your bedroom theme can be.
Default bedroom design themes you could kick off with include options of:
Modern vs. Rustic Bedroom themes
An apartment bedroom on a Condo overlooking busy New York City is more likely to feature a modern-themed decor, while a suburban villa home in Seattle is more likely to sell furnished with a Rustic-bedroom theme. Rustic would call for polished wood finishing and furnishing, carvings and sculptures, antique pieces like vintage wall clocks and ancient art, to name but a few touches.

Cozy vs. Minimalist Bedroom themes
The Minimalist route is a pretty good way to strike the balance for a modern couple using just that: Simplicity through inviting minimalism. Fine lines without the frills, astute unique colors without the fanfare, functional furniture additions and elegantly blended interior decor…It’s not meant to be an obstruction, but instead, subjection to your modern lifestyle. None of the pieces in a truly modern minimalist bedroom space should be “in the way of anything”, rather, chic clever pieces should be obscurely available; creative Inlays, concealed wardrobes and tucked shelves will win the bedroom space… They key is in adding onto the entire bedroom ambiance without standing out too much yet without which, making all the difference.

Should you settle for the Cozy-themed master bedroom, not only will you get away with plenty of D-I-Y, but further, the alternate to Minimalism generally applies: The more the merrier! Apparently, this also usurps the available bedroom space and could very easily become counterproductive for the Zen in your master bedroom.

“Cooling” vs. “Warming” Bedroom themes
These two themes are mainly expressed in the color schemes and in the bedroom lighting used. However, the design concepts go beyond just the use of cooling colors like pale blues, purple violets and white; or warming colors like gold, red, yellow and orange.

Futuristic vs. Oriental Bedroom themes
Be careful not to cross over to converting your master bedroom feel to “museum-like” in a bid to channel the Futuristic-themed bedroom design…it’s not too easy falling asleep in a jewelry store! Artistic, timeless accessories like canvas paintings from the East, exotic Persian rugs, traditional patterned wallpaper, giant Asiatic fans and vases are sure to bring out the Oriental-themed bedroom very nicely if any interior designer should say so! On the other hand, a tapestry from the 19th century and an Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 adjustable bed are very unlikely to go together in the same bedroom. This is where you really need to make sure you either pick a modern, futuristic theme or a traditional, country theme. Mixing the two in one form or the other can spell disaster to your master bedroom.
